Required fields are marked * Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday In Galatians 5-6 the Apostle Paul wrote compellingly about people’s search to know how to live life well.  He said that many have a strong inclination to sync up their lives either with their own internal desires or with the world’s values.  Following their own desires, many people seem to think that if they could do whatever they want without restraint, then they will be happy.It’s possible that just as many people sync their life’s decisions up with what the world values as with their own inner desires.  In our consumerist society, almost everything that is advertised says, “Buy this product and you will be cool, respected, and happy.”  Of course, that promise only holds until a new product comes out promising the same thing.To all this, the Bible says that the way to find life is to experience the love of God through faith in Jesus, to experience compassion and support in the community of Jesus-followers and – in particular – to sync our life decisions with the leading and empowering of God’s Spirit.  This is what the Apostle Paul wrote, “Walk by the Spirit and you will not have to gratify the over-desire of the flesh… If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit (Galatians 5:16,25).”For many years, I have observed people claiming to believe in Jesus but continuing to live in sync with the values of self and/or of the world.  This fall 2015 at Lake, we will look at the Bible’s beautiful alternative to the ways of life lived in sync with the “flesh” or with the world.  That Spirit-synced way of life will be characterized by nine compelling characteristics that the Apostle Paul calls “the fruit of the Spirit”.  My prayer is that we will see that Spirit-produced fruit growing in us all – to God’s glory alone.Greg Waybright, Senior Pastor Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website center_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes More Cool Stuff Business News Community News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community News Faith Essays & Inspirations Lake Avenue Church: A Spirit-Synced Way of Life By Greg Waybright, Senior Pastor Published on Thursday, September 3, 2015 | 11:47 am 12 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it last_img read more

The plan, or lack there of, is generating much opposition in the housing industry.”[The National Association of Realtors] supports the goals of simplification and structural improvements for the tax system, and individual tax rates should be as low as possible while still providing for a balanced fiscal policy,” Iona Harrison, Chair of NAR’s Federal Taxation Committee said in a statement during a Senate Finance Committee hearing. “We simply believe that to achieve these goals, Congress should commit first to doing no harm to the common interest that homeownership provides.”NAHB’s Howard, however, sees the plan as an opportunity to embrace creative alternatives and said that members of the tax code writing House of Representatives Ways and Means and Senate Finance committees have expressed interest in creating a homeownership credit.
